The last year for 205's in the UK was 1996. The back panel changed in '93. The range was odd, offering a myriad of models, a lot of them seemingly conflicting. The GR was reasonably mid range, but could be had with either the 1360cc engine - for the lifespan of the model, or the 1124cc engine for 1990-1991 model year only. In the 5drs only the GR or GT came with the 1360cc engine (GR - single choke carb. GT - twin choke carb), anything higher - including autos came with the 1580cc. Lower - with the 1124cc or 954cc.Really early ones had the 'Lay back and Die' engines carried over from the Visa/104/LNA/R14, they whine like mad as the gears are in the sump, Think these stopped in '84/5 when the TU engines started.The badge designation generally means the bodystyle and spec, so three doors were 'X' i.e. XE XL XR XS. Five doors 'G' GE GL GR GT. Exceot the GTi and AutoI need to get out more..... :shock: :D :shock:

I love those pickups, L must be a late one then.
Im fairly sure my uncles farm had one, as at one point to be a farmer in Scotland it was pretty much a legal requirement to have one of these.

Yeah, they seemed to make a bewildering array of models. The one I had seemingly DOES NOT COMPUTE when you ask the 'experts': I had a 1991 registered 205 'Trio S' 1.1 which afforded jazzy seats and green seatbelts, but came with zero luxury and a 4-speed gearbox (this is the bit that foxes people). Belting little car that was, absolute hoot to drive. Only sold it when I started driving more motorway miles. Oh and Mrs_Pog hated it, due to the manual choke....

I'm sure I've seen a 205 with twin carbs.

Yeah, the proper French spec Rallye model had twin Solexes on the 1360 cc TU lump. The Rallye we got was a stripped out special edition based on a UK spec XS. I keep telling my mate Jack this as he's got an example of the latter, but he won't have it. You also get the odd converted Mi 16 engined 205 GTi running twin Weber or Dellorto 45s, the misabs are quite easy to get. What I didn't know until recently is that you could buy OEM Mi 16 engined 205 and 309 GTIs in France. They were known as GTi 16s and they were built for touring car homologation (well, the 309s were).

The French spec Rallye had a bored out 1124cc (to 1294cc) TU engine with twin weber carbs. Giving 102bhp. As you say the UK did get the 1360cc engine, with 75bhp. 1000 were produced for Germany with the 1.9 engine from the GTi, but the extra weight makes them not as popular. Can I remove my anorack now? :lol:

It was a name that they were given in a citroen specialist I worked in, I think because they were generally a pig to work on, you had to pull the engine to do any headwork, and setting the valve clearances meant looking like you were being eaten by the car.

Look at this 'pizza delivery spec' 106 van, it's well nice, much better than your average van chod. I could see myself blezzing about with this, my stinky blind dog sticking his head out of the window. Much more stylish than my current van, which is PEZ

This is ridiculous, if I could set myself up in France and transport all this stuff over to the UK, I'd make a fortune. I even did French at school! Sadly I spent the lessons drawing in my book margins and covertly reading Sega Saturn magazine, so all I can say is "un, deux, trois" and "pommes frites". Great if I want to buy anything up to three portions of chips, not so great if I want to negotiate the purchase of a Tagora diesel.
